Siyuan Zhang, Nancy Dee Assistant Professor of Cancer Research, Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences and affiliated member of Harper Cancer Research Institute at the University of Notre Dame, recently won a grant from the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI). Awarded Pilot Funding for Research Use of Core Facilities, Zhang is planning on using his funding to learn more about brain metastasis in cancer patients. The award was designed to promote the use of technologies and knowledge made available by Indiana CTSI-designed cores available at partner institutions.
The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) announced that University of Notre Dame researchers have been awarded grants through the CTSI Pilot Funding program. The program is intended to promote the use of technologies and expertise available through CTSI Core Facilities, which are available at the partner institutions.
Each year, SPARK, a Stanford University initiative that provides the education and mentorship in order to advance research discoveries from the bench to the bedside, hosts a diverse group to participate in a 12-day training course in biotech innovation and entrepreneurship. The program provides an understanding of how biotechnology products, such as medical devices, food science, and general medical science, and companies are created, established, managed, advertised, and funded. Ricardo Romero, graduate student of the Integrated Biomedical Sciences program and researcher in the Harper Cancer Research Institute, had the opportunity to attend the program through the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (Indiana CTSI).
The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (Indiana CTSI) recently announced multiple recipients of the Collaboration in Translational Research Pilot (CTR) Grant Program. The CTR Program seeks to foster and encourage collaboration across Indiana CTSI partner institutions by awarding up to $75,000 for the projects.
Researchers from Indiana University, Purdue University, and the University of Notre Dame will be attending the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (Indiana CTSI) retreat hosted at the University of Notre Dame on Friday, October 21, 2016. During the event, faculty, students, and other researchers will have the opportunity to present posters and hear from colleagues throughout Indiana.
Notre Dame researcher explores bacteria beyond the ability of typical hospital setting

Each year 332,000 total hip replacements are performed in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Out of those, nearly one percent of patients will get an infection and require the removal of their prosthetic replacement. Even though a small overall percentage, still more than 3,000 people are likely to get an infection that, if left untreated, could result in amputation.…
The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) awarded pre-doctoral training, post-doctoral training, and young investigator awards in translational research to four Notre Dame researchers. The training awards provide funding for research that is translational in nature, taking advantage of the clinical collaboration.
On May 17 – 18, 2016 the Notre Dame Integrated Imaging Facility (NDIIF) is hosting their third annual Midwest Imaging and Microanalysis Workshop at the University of Notre Dame. The two-day event was jointly organized by the Department of Electrical Engineering, along with support from Notre Dame Research and other Colleges, departments, and centers. Researchers who utilize imaging technologies are invited to learn about the new trends in high resolution and in-situ electron microscopy for nanotechnology, materials, and bio-sciences.

A common critical gap in commercialization of technologies originating from the academic labs is the funding necessary to develop a robust commercialization relevant data package to reduce the risk of investment in early stage technologies. The Indiana CTSI…
Drug Development Services through the Molecular Therapeutics Program
Professor Marya Lieberman has been awarded a grant from the US Agency for International Development (USAID) to monitor the quality of pharmaceuticals across western Kenya through the use of an innovative diagnostic test cards developed in her laboratory. These inexpensive, point-of-need devices have been shown to detect falsified antibiotics, TB medications, and anti-malarial drugs. This work address a major need as the Kenyan Pharmacy and Poisons Board estimates as many as 30% of the medications available on the local market are substandard or falsified. …
